Ipswich: Changes made to bus services in bid to improve punctuality

A BUS company is set to make changes to a number of its services in Ipswich.

Malcolm Robson, managing director of Ipswich Buses, said that the changes would start today, and were aimed at improving punctuality.

He said he hoped the changes would also provide new links to Ransomes Europark and Ipswich train station.

Service one to Ransomes Europark via Ravenswood will now serve Central Avenue on Mondays to Fridays. Services one and three will still operate every 15 minutes during the main part of the day.

Two additional journeys have also be added to the number one from the train station, running at 7.25pm and 7.45pm.

Services 8 and 8b from Whitehouse will be increased to run every town minutes with links through to the rail station.
